We’re nearly two months into the 2021 MiLB season and goodness gracious it’s been an interesting one. Cal Raleigh looks like a world-beater, Julio Rodríguez is an international sensation, and Brandon Williamson cannot help but strike people out. John, Joe, and Kate go through their stars and express some concern with a few laggards, but on the whole things have been positive down on the farm thus far this year.

On the back half, we dig into some draft-focused questions, with the 2021 MLB Draft just under two weeks away. Who are some folks Seattle should be narrowing their focus on, and what is their likeliest strategy with pick No. 12?
